Dries Van Noten

Here is a relatively extensive post about who I would say is my favorite designer, at least in terms of aesthetic quality, Dries Van Noten. His consistent intellectually minded collections are really inspiring. I will include some of my favorite pieces, a few beauty and detail photographs, and a video from the backstage coverage.

Another Well Dressed (Very) Young Man

I just couldn't resist posting a photo snapped by the Beyond Boston Chic photographer Martini. It seems she spotted this adorable little boy while in Paris, and the combination of his concentration and outfit make me smile. Her blog is great and you can find it here.

Great Backstage Coverage

I like to not only look at the photos of the collections as they come down the runway but also the backstage photos because they seem to give an idea to the mood/theme/beauty elements of the show. always has great coverage. Below is an image by Julian Schratter and here is a link to some backstage Perry Ellis S/S '12 coverage.

Burberry Time

I know London Fashion Week is over but I need to post some Burberry looks before I move on to anything else. I thought it was a lovely collection.

The pieces were bright and eclectic, but still versatile

Some great evening wear

Great coat

Another great coat

Absolutely loved the men's looks as well

Pale September

On a day for reflection, this song by Camille is a beautiful song for remembering the tragedy of that September morning ten years ago.

After a recent trip to the Northwest I've been thinking a lot more about the grunge style that was so popular in the 90s. A good friend of mine stole a rustic red flannel shirt from her older brother and I realized that the (albeit watered down)grunge look has become more accepted in large retailers. I will post probably the most famous image from the grunge era and some varied modern takes.
